COLUMBUS, Ohio — Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan visited The Ohio State University today to watch the Buckeyes take on his alma mater, the Miami University of Ohio Red Hawks, but first took met up with his Delta Tau Delta fraternity brothers.

From the pool report:

Mr. Ryan moved on to play a game of corn hole with 11-year-old Zachary Wymer. Each scored one point. As he missed a shot, Ryan said, “I missed trying to get the camera guy there,’’ meaning one of the press pool cameramen.

Ryan continued to pose for pictures and to be greeted enthusiastically by the scores of people in the enclosure, which was hosted by the Columbus Hospitality Group, whose chief executive, Charles TK, was the host.

Ryan next moved behind a grill and flipped burgers for a minute or so, standing beside the grill man, Leonard Hall, a CHG employee. Mr. Ryan’s mother, Betty Ryan Douglas, who was with him, said it was “just like he did at McDonalds.’’ She said he was 16 when he had that job, as soon as he was legal age to work. Before that he mowed lawns, she said.
